Dr. Carlos Ramos Beyond LVEF - What other values are important in clinical practice?
About the event
Dr Carlos Ramos, cardiologist from Honduras, shares the importance of the left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) for the prognosis of patients with heart failure: *The correction of the Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction is a therapeutic goal since it is a predictor of cardiovascular death and hospitalization for heart failure ¹ Left ventricular ejection fraction can be improved with medical treatment ² Ivabradine improves LVEF in patients with heart failure by +15% ³
